Tonight, the Butler Bulldogs take on the Duke Blue Devils for the national championship, hoping to strike a mighty blow for mid-majors everywhere. (But hey, the BCS is a much better system than this March Madness tournament thing, right?)
However, you’d think Butler has already cut down the nets, based on the wild celebrations from Bulldog fans after Saturday’s Final Four win over Michigan State.
Yardbarker blog The Global Sports Fraternity hit the street of Indy to partake in the post-game partying:
Butler backers are hoping to repeat the revelry again this evening, but might have they jinxed themselves by getting so over-exuberant over a semifinal?
Still, a Butler national title would make a great feel good story - and keep those braggart Blue Devils fans quiet for a while.
Thanks to Champion for sponsoring this Journey to the Tourney post.
